rachel and i had oh so much fun making these multi-colored cupcakes last weekend. we split the batter into five bowls and went to town with the food coloring (the gel kind). my personal fave is the robin’s egg blue shade. they’re really very easy to make, and i love that each little cake is a different, surprise combo.
